Fish were really active on Saturday, moved lots of fish on topwaters from 5 till dark. Had 3 blow ups, no hook ups. One was due to operator error, the other two were due to the fish not looking at what they were trying to eat...

Someone else on the lake caught a ski right at dusk, I could hear them screaming for joy all the way across the lake.

It is getting way too hot though, parts of the lake were 80 degrees, the main basin was 74 to 76. With no cool down in site, before long temps will be pushing 80 all over the lake.

I will be putting away the Muskie sticks until some cooler weather comes through - which might be October the way this summer is going.

Hopefully the temps cool down for the FM gathering planned, otherwise I would seriously consider changing the date. If you hook into a decent fish that puts up a fight - with these hot temps it's pretty much a death sentence...

We will be heading up there this weekend fishing mainly pikes and bass but we have caught some nice ski's doing that. Your right about the water temps are real hot and can be very damaging to the ski's so we'll have to be careful if we hook into one.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
